As Cities Burn and Chaos Ensues, Do All Victims Matter? — Opinion

Inquiring minds want to know!

Racism is abominable, unfair, and immoral. No one should be victimized on account of skin color. Victimization in America is deluded, however, by orchestrated agendas, and thus only some victims count. How so? Let’s start in 1965.

Systematic Victimization

Recognizing that African-Americans had been victimized in society for 100+ years, the Johnson Administration’s “Great Society” in 1964 and 1965 became the driving force behind an array of initiatives for redress.

By 2014, the U.S. had spent $22,000,000,000,000 ($22 trillion) on affirmative action and wealth re-distribution type programs to raise the education level, employment status, and income level of African Americans. In perspective, in world history, only 17 countries including the U.S. have ever achieved an annual GDP of at least one trillion dollars, for even one year.

$22 trillion dollars breaks down to more than $16,000 allocated per African-American citizen, alive, in each of those 50 years. Over the span of a 40-year career, such as ages 18 to 58, or ages 22-62, $16,000 annually, sums to $640,000 per person.

Violence by the Numbers

In present day America, one in five police officers is black. Annually, U.S. police encounters with the public number in the tens of millions. Based on Bureau of Justice Statistics for 2018, black-on-white violent crime overall — murders and violent attacks — totaled 547,948, whereas vice versa was 112,365.

Page 3 of Homicide Trends in the U.S. reveals that the offending homicide rate for blacks, 34.4 per 100,000, is nearly eight times higher than the rate for whites, 4.5 per 100,000. Moreover, blacks kill from 8 to 10 times as many whites, annually, than vice versa, as reported in the National Crime Victimization Survey, 2018, from the Bureau of Justice Statistics.

With a nation of roughly six times as many whites as blacks, adjusting for representation in the population means blacks murdering whites is 54 times more likely than vice versa. From 1965 to the present, as incredible as it seems, all black-on-white murders or violent attacks sums to more than 20,000,000.

Currently, nearly half of African-American surveyed say that they know of someone treated callously by police. And, black male adults are five times more likely as white male adults to report they’ve been unfairly stopped by police because of their race or ethnicity. In context, one can begin to comprehend how being unfairly stopped and callously treated might happen.

Police of all races have to be on high alert and deal with their own zooming pulses: The data from 55 years reveal that black-on-white violence is much more prevalent than vice versa. As such, some innocent black males and to a lesser extent black females unfortunately become victimized by police.

No Denying the Violence

Research from the Manhattan Institute shows that, “An officer’s chance of getting killed by a black assailant is 18.5 times higher than the chance of an unarmed black getting killed by a cop,” …despite what mainstream press chooses for headlines. Virtually everyone in law enforcement is aware that blacks are overwhelmingly more likely to kill or attack whites than vice versa. Law enforcement veterans have long known this, and live with it daily.

Certainly, a variety of socioeconomic factors at play lead to higher crime rates among blacks. Still, how can police be expected to tiptoe around black assailants or suspects? Behavior is at issue: Not skin color. Police often make split second decisions; they are not sociologists or psychologists with extended time to assess situations.

Considering 55 years of corroborated FBI data, private research, and university-based studies, the police are undertaking an incredibly difficult job.

Black Privilege

Based on Washington State University-Spokane findings, U.S. white police officers are far less likely to shoot unarmed blacks than other races due to, “real-world concern over discipline, liability, or public disapproval.”

Other findings reveal that police, “were more likely to shoot unarmed white suspects than unarmed black or Hispanic suspects, and were more likely to fail to shoot armed black suspects than armed white or Hispanic suspects.” In sum, police display a, “significant bias favoring black suspects in their decisions to shoot.”

Despite blacks murdering whites at a rate 54 times more likely than vice versa, the Leftist media machine, the leading newspapers chief among them, has censored the truth for decades, calls anyone who illuminates these issues a racist, and reports on little or none of this. Hence the perpetuation of hostilities all around continues.

No Truth, No Resolution

Society can deal with the truth when given the truth. Starting from the truth, viable solutions can be proposed, implemented, tested, and refined. Without the truth, we can only dance around the periphery of this half-century epidemic of violence, and never truly address the roots of the issue.

Where do we begin? Acknowledge that all victims matter, so that America does not stay on the same erroneous path for the next 55 years.

Ilhan Omar Caught Red-Handed In ‘Cash-For-Ballots Harvesting Scheme’ — Project Veritas Report

Caught ya!

Everybody knows that Ilhan Omar is corrupt. Her disturbing track record proves it. However, this new blemish on her resume is likely to turn more heads than usual. If the mainstream media was honest with the American public, they’d report on this story from Project Veritas. Here’s the deal, via Project Veritas: [Minneapolis–Sept. 27, 2020] Project Veritas investigators revealed a ballot harvesting scheme here involving clan and political allies and associates of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D.-Minn.) in the first of a series of reports. “Numbers don’t lie. Numbers don’t lie. You can see my car is full. All these here are absentees’ ballots. Can’t you see? Look at all these, my car is full. All these are for Jamal Osman… We got 300 today for Jamal Osman only,” said Liban Mohamed in a series of Snapchat videos posted July 1 and July 2 on his own Snapchat profile. CONTINUED: Mohamed said he was collecting the ballots to help his brother win the city’s Aug. 11 special election for a vacant Ward 6 city council race—which was held the same day as the primary for Omar’s MN-05 congressional seat. Ward 6 is the heart of the city’s Somali community and the Omar’s political base. James O’Keefe, the founder and CEO of Project Veritas, said: “Ballot harvesting is real and it has become a big business. Our investigation into this ballot harvesting ring demonstrates clearly how these unscrupulous operators exploit the elderly and immigrant communities—and have turned the sacred ballot box into a commodities trading desk.” LOOK: https://twitter.com/DonaldJTrumpJr/status/1310385604962775042?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1310385604962775042%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-project-veritas-exposes-ilhan-omar-connection-to-illegal-ballot-harvesting-voter-fraud-scheme%2F VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZWK56l2VaLY&feature=emb_title

Ocasio-Cortez: ‘Republicans’ Are ‘Spineless, Misogynistic Hypocrites’

How original!

The New York Times, a hysterically funny satire “news”paper, or, a liberal version of The Babylon Bee, if you will, put out a report on Sunday about President Trump’s taxes. Yeah, they’re back on that train again. AOC gleaned the highlights, then decided to tweet at her uninformed, politically backward social media followers. Check this out, via The Hill: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) slammed President Trump on Sunday over a report in The New York Times detailing his personal tax contributions over the past 20 years. In a tweet, the freshman New York lawmaker pointed to the taxes reportedly paid by the president and former media mogul in 2016 and 2017 — $750 a year — as being less than she paid while working as a bartender in New York City prior to her election to office in 2018. LOOK: https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1310384989524185093?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1310384989524185093%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fthehill.com%2Fhomenews%2Fhouse%2F518529-ocasio-cortez-trump-contributed-less-in-taxes-than-waitresses-and-undocumented Next, Ocasio-Cortez hammered Republicans for being “spineless, misogynistic hypocrites.” https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1310388421286920193?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1310388421286920193%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fthehill.com%2Fhomenews%2Fhouse%2F518529-ocasio-cortez-trump-contributed-less-in-taxes-than-waitresses-and-undocumented For a member of the lower chamber, who swore an oath to the United States of America, to claim that illegal immigration should be accepted, is absolutely preposterous. AOC said, “We can’t go on with kinda these xenophobic narratives that undocumented people are somehow wrong.” See how she words it? She’s making the uninformed believe that conservatives feel that illegals are bad people. No, that’s not it at all – IT’S THE ACT OF CROSSING THE BORDER…ILLEGALLY!! Why is that such a difficult concept for her to grasp? VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V8LwqJ_6T3Q&feature=emb_title Check this out, via Washington Examiner: Conservative political commentator Candace Owens got involved in a Twitter argument between former White House press secretary Sarah Sanders and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, accusing the New York congresswoman of hypocrisy in her response to the coronavirus. AOC’s tweet: https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1253368962663972870?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1253368962663972870&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.analyzingamerica.org%2Fcandace-owens-eviscerates-aoc-youre-a-racist-radical-communist-that-wants-to-expand-government-control-and-dependency%2F Owens’ response: https://twitter.com/RealCandaceO/status/1253375616902193158
